I am currently using c:CustomLookup to search users in the below code but I am looking to use lookup search(<lightning:input type="search"/>) because c:CustomLookup reqires some more efforts like I need to fetch value of the user separately while saving the record.

<aura:component controller="SampleClass">
<aura:attribute name="newJenJob" type="RM_Configuration__c"/>
    <div aura:id="jenUserCrtModal" class="slds-hide">
        <div class="slds-modal slds-fade-in-open">
            <div class="slds-modal__container">
                <div class="slds-modal__header">
                    <div class="align-align--absolute-center">Create Jenkins User</div>
                    <div aura:id="jenUserErrorMsgId" style="color:red;" class="slds-hide slds-align--absolute-center">Please fill all the Mandatory Fields *</div>
                <div class="slds-modal__content" style="padding:20px;">
                            <lightning:input name="n1" label="Jenkins User Name" value="{!v.newJenUser.Jenkins_User_Name__c}" required="true"/>
                            <lightning:input name="n2" type="password" value="{!v.newJenUser.Jenkins_Password__c}" label="Jenkins User Password" required="true"/>
                            <!--<force:inputField value="{!v.newJenUser.SFDC_User__c}" required="true"/>-->                             
                            <c:CustomLookup aura:id="jenUsrId" objectAPIName="User" IconName="standard:goals" selectedRecord="{!v.selectedJenUsrLookUpRecord}" label="SFDC User"/>                          
                            <lightning:input name="n5" label="Is Active?" type="checkbox" value="{!v.newJenUser.Jenkins_User_Active__c}" checked="{!v.newJenUser.Jenkins_User_Active__c}"/>
               <div class="slds-modal__footer">
                    <div class="align-align--absolute-center">
                        <lightning:button label="Cancel" onclick="{!c.closeModal}" class="cancelBtnStyl"/>
                        <lightning:button label="Save" onclick="{!c.saveJenUser}" class="saveBtnStyl"/>
       <div class="slds-backdrop slds-backdrop--open"></div>           

Can anyone please let me know how to do that?

  • @Himanshu, I have put the things what I am trying, Can you please tell me whether it is possible in this way or not. – Kiruthika Nov 16 '17 at 11:10

I think you have mistaken <lightning:input type="search"/> as a standard lookup component.

It is a mere input control, which when defined as type = "search" will just display the Lightning Design System search utility icon.

Refer here for documentation

You will have to build a custom lookup field to achieve this. Hence custom code would be required

Here are a few examples which will help you in creating the lookup component.

  • Great answer! another option is to use Strike Lookup from the strike library - very recommended!!! – Itai Shmida Nov 19 '17 at 7:14
